With our lives so scheduled and rushed, we can sometimes overlook the simple pleasures in everyday objects surrounding us. The balance of colour, textural surprises, interesting composition and the wonderful shapes of my chosen subject matter are all brought to light for me when I paint.
It’s exciting when someone connects with a painting that started as a blank canvas. Often times these connections lead to wonderful friendships.
